Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course will introduce students to the federal Lanham Act and related common law doctrines that protect against consumer confusion and the appropriation of commercial goodwill. We will investigate the creation and maintenance of trademark rights, trademark registration and administrative proceedings, loss of trademark rights, infringement of trademark rights, proof of infringement, defenses and limitations, unfair competition law, and jurisdiction and remedies. In addition to these essentials of trademark eligibility, registration, and infringement, we will consider the constitutional and economic foundations of trademark protection and evaluate current trends of trademark law in a digital environment such as the protection of internet domain names.
